About Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate Program at
Engineers are the
people who create what was not present before by using science and mathematics
and develop products, processes, algorithms, systems that will be solutions to
human needs. Based on the industrial revolution of the 19th century,
mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and most established engineering
which aims to improve human living conditions with mechanical components and
systems by using materials and energy available in the nature, obviously has a
multidisciplinary structure. For example, the design of an automobile
combines many fields such as physics, statics, dynamics, strength of materials,
chemistry, thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, control, materials,
vibration and mechanical design. Areas such as nuclear energy, aerospace,
shipbuilding and industrial engineering are the disciplines that mechanical
engineering breeds and develops.
The tendency of change
brought by science and technology has led mechanical engineering to adopt micro
and nano technologies, biomechanics, information technologies, energy and
environmental issues. Both enriching the main areas with these new technologies
and raising awareness with current examples and practices in the process of
addressing the main issues are on the agenda of mechanical engineering. The
image of heavy machinery industry is gradually being replaced by
micro-electro-mechanical systems and adaptations to life sciences. The
mechanical engineering program is regularly updated by taking into account
today's technological facts and requirements.
